HPCompaq nx9010 power switch broken

\015 The power switch on my nx9010 has 'dissapeared' above the hole it should be located in and I can't turn it on.How can I fix/repair this, please.Is there an alternative method of getting it to fire ?\015

Answers :

You should still be able to boot the machine even if the on/off button is missing, try poke the flat end of a pencil down the hole and apply just a little pressure and pull the pencil out and the laptop should boot, to reapir this you need to remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard, this can be hard to do because of how they are clipped together, you should not have to remove anything else because this will reveal where the "power on" board is, all you need to do is replace the button or the panel, you may even find the the original button\015\012

You need to take the plastic panel off that houses the power switch... (some just unsnap from the base and some have screws holding it in from the underside..) the power switch connects to the underside of it, it is kept in place by melted plastic rivots.... So If you can retrieve your power button from inside the laptop, you can replace the button and super glue the contacts where the button was previously rivoted.. that way it will still have its " springiness" feel and work the same as if it was the plastic rivots...
